First off, I know we technically had a 3-day weekend. However, in the interest of keeping the numbers the same as any other weekend I am not counting the money made on Memorial Day (May 30th). Some places are counting it, I will not be.
And surprise, surprise! X-Men: Apocalypse took the first place at the box office. Anyone who suspected anything else has been living under a rock for the past five years.
The real news here is how little Alice Through the Looking Glass made. The first movie of the franchise, Alice in Wonderland, made over 100 Million in its opening weekend back in 201o. But this past weekend the sequel couldn’t even make 40% of what its predecessor did. The rest of the lineup should come as no surprise. Check out the results below
No 1. X-Men: Apocalypse – $65,000,000 in its first weekend of release.
No 2. Alice Through the Looking Glass – $26,997,000 in its first weekend of release.
No 3. The Angry Birds Movie – $18,750,000. Bringing its total gross in its 2nd weekend to $66,403,309.
No 4. Captain America: Civil War – $15,379,000. Bringing its total gross in its 4th weekend to $372,855,948.
No 5. Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising – $9,274,440. Bringing its total gross in its 2nd weekend to $38,511,020
